1. Core i5 2500k
2. A p67 or z68 motherboard in your price range
3. 4 or 8 gigs of DDR3 ram
4. An SSD

And there you have an awesome gaming machine.

Your card lacks dx11. That is where you would see a performance hit. Wait or buy, there will always be another card/series around the corner. I would rather have a current gen card just to have all the current effects available.
Anytime I've jumped to a new "DX" level, all I do is enable features that further slow down the card anyway. When DX10 came out, I got an 8800 series card and more often than not found myself disabling the "choose this to remove 10-15 frames per second" feature. There isn't anything in DX11 I'd consider really motivating for a new card. Not yet anyway, maybe after Battlefield 3, but are there any current gen examples?

In all honesty, DX11 is mostly an optimized DX10 that helps to alleviate some of the performance overhead while offering the same visual effects. Most recent DX10 cards, including your GTX 295, can readily support a number of DX11 features due to the fact that it really isn't a complete departure from the previous generation. In fact, the main feature that has been used in a handful of games is tessellation, which unless if you were directly comparing a non-tessellated texture versus one that is tessellated side-by-side, you may be hard pressed to notice a difference.

There really aren't any shining examples of game altering usages of tessellation, but Lost Planet 2, Metro 2033, and Crysis 2 (with DX11 patches) are ones that do stick out that boast making use of this feature.

Here's an article that may interest you:

http://techreport.com/articles.x/21404/1

In my opinion, the only convincing reason why you should consider upgrading to a current generation card from a GTX 295, would be for better performance in games that you play today regardless of what DX revision it may or may not support. Newer cards, while they do support higher DX versions, are great just for the pure fact that they offer better performance in older DX games. Other reasons that may or may not influence you include better folding performance, higher scores in benchmarking, cooler/quieter running card(s), the ability to play games smoothly in 3D, and better performance in Surround.

To upgrade just for a DX revision, especially DX11 (at this very moment), is not going to give you the mind blowing experience that it is made out to be.

If you go sli-570's or 580 or 590 (worst option imo) on any resolution but triple monitor there is nothing out now that you won't be able to run on all high settings including DX11.
As far as examples, I'm guessing you mean games?
Crysis2 DX11 + high res textures=win
Metro 2033
Deus Ex:Human Revolution
I read Lost Planet 2 was supposed to be quite the visual treat but a terrible game?
Here is list of games with DX11:

Ok so I got the Gigabyte GTX 560Ti
I actually UNDERCLOCKED the original 900Mhz overclock to 850Mhz because it was known for being a bad OC so I did this out of precaution.
